伯特利犹太教堂 Temple Beth El Congregation

1966-1972

这是路易斯康唯一建成的犹太教堂。 路易斯康追求几何学。中庭是一个发光的光之容器,象征着会众的休息和复兴。圣殿用红木木板覆盖混凝土框架,这也许是卡恩对被纳粹摧毁的波兰木制犹太教堂的诠释。

即使在他的全集里,也只有一个平面图。但是,他在落成典礼上发表了讲话,他说,他对这座建筑的外观“深感满意”。

This was Kahn’s only completed synagogue.  Kahn is all about geometry.The atrium is a glowing vessel of light, symbolizing the resto­ration and reinvigoration of the congregation. The sanctuary has redwood plank cladding in a frame of concrete, perhaps Kahn’s interpretation of the Polish wooden synagogues that were destroyed by the Nazis.

Even in his book of complete works, there’s just a floor plan. But he gave a speech at the dedication ceremony in which he said he was “deeply pleased” with how the building turned out.
